Amber Janitorial, Inc. began life in 1987 as Amber Cleaning Service. Begun as a sole proprietorship by founder and company President Sandra Amodt, it quickly became apparent that there was a need for a service that provided a combination of excellence and attention to detail. With $500, a 20 year old vacuum cleaner, and a bucket of cleaning supplies, the company was born.
Sandra placed a small advertisement in a local newspaper and, within six months, the business grew to 22 houses, three offices, and two Dentist’s offices. From the very beginning the goal was, and remains, to provide a level of service and personalization unequaled in the industry. To quote Sandra, “We don’t need to be the biggest, just the best.”
In 1996 the company was incorporated as Amber Janitorial, Inc. and the focus was shifted exclusively to commercial janitorial services and building maintenance. Many of the cleaning techniques utilized by the company were developed in-house and are exclusive to Amber Janitorial. For example, Sandra Amodt and Amy Vogel created a formula and process to strip cement dust out of floor finish. This is a feat nobody had ever accomplished, not even S.C. Johnson.
The goal has never been to grow large, fast. Instead, over the years, the company has seen steady incremental growth. Today, Amber Janitorial, Inc. employees 29 people, and we believe that these people are the best in the industry.
Amber Janitorial, Inc. believes that the foundation for our success begins with thorough training. Before being left alone on a client site, every employee goes through a complete and detailed training regimen. This training includes both the general cleaning methodologies used by the company, as well as the specific needs of the customer. In the end, each cleaning technician “owns” their site and thus takes great pride in the work they do.
Amber Janitorial, Inc. is aggressive about safety. During training, this aspect of the job is heavily emphasized, and all cleaning technicians are provided with any necessary equipment to provide for their safety, as well as the safety of the job site.
Amber Janitorial, Inc. is fully licensed, bonded, and insured.
